Side Effects
The only side effect that I have experienced is decreased sweating, which is fine with me. It also makes me a little tired during the day, but it's better than dealing with IBS symptoms.

Additional Thoughts
I have diarrhea predominant IBS and, right now, Donnatal works great for me, although I do experience occasions where IBS symptoms return, but much less than they used to. I would just say that anyone taking it should make sure that they visit their gastroenterologist yearly.
